Euphoria Jack

by DarkJade

EPISODE I – ENTER

NEW YORK COLONY, 2139

“Jack hadn’t been at the office for a month…”

A young half Japanese, have Caucasian, 17 year old girl arrives in an automated Limousine Flyer, outside the high rise apartment building of ‘REAL TECH’ Industries CEO, and Owner, JACK RYAS.

The girl, EUPHORIA, is the head Hacker… Er… Computer Specialist for the company.

She has a slim, but slightly curvy figure, with white shoulder length hair and grey eyes.

Wearing all white, her outfit is skin tight, but with a utility belt, and wrist brace devices… and on her fingernails are little black skulls against a white background.

Outside the entrance are two very large security guards, dressed in all black, with dark shades…

Euphoria is also wearing shades, hers are silver…

…through them she sees all the hidden backup weapons on each of their persons.

“Hello…” she says as she walks by them.

“Euphoria…” one of them replies.

Euphoria crosses the lobby, and enters the high speed elevator…

…but before it starts to go up, she stops it, “Halt”.

“What if it’s bad news… What if…” her thoughts wander off.

“Go,” with this the elevator continues.

It stops at Jack’s bedroom floor, and opens.

She enters the barely lit room hesitantly… She’s never been anywhere near Jack’s Apartment, let alone his bedroom.

“Euphoria… Come,” he speaks weakly…

…as he lays in his bed, several blinking medical devices are around him.

Euphoria moves very slowly, and can tell looking at him, that he is not well…

…tears come to her eyes, but she pushes them back.

“Hello Jack… We’ve missed you at work… I’ve–” she speaks, but is cut off.

“Come…” he says, patting his bed.

Jack looks to be in his late twenties, but whatever’s wrong with him, makes him look a bit older, and definitely thinner.

She slowly makes her way to the edge of his bed, and sits, as far away from him as possible.

He smiles, “I’ve missed you too.”

Euphoria smiles slightly, but than the dread of what he’s probably going to tell her returns, and she is subdued once more.

“Euphoria… What you’ve done for ‘Real Tech’… What you’ve done for me, has been…” he fades off, and coughs.

She stands and approaches him, “Do you need some water?”

His coughing stops, “Don’t worry, I’m not contagious…”

She sits next to him, “I’m not going to be around much longer Euphoria…”

She looks horrified, and can no longer hold back the tears, which begin to run down her face.

He places a hand on her cheek, “I’m leaving you in control of ‘Real Tech’… The things we’re accomplishing there… They’re changing the world.”

She takes his hand, “What is it… What’s wrong with you… We can stop it… We can heal you!!” she bursts out in desperation.

Jack smiles, “It’s no use… This body is done.”

She puts two of her fingers on his forehead, “But this mind is not… With the new Cloning Technology, and Consciousness Transfers, we’ll just get you a new body, I’m sure it will work…”

“Believe it or not, I’m a believer in the nature of things… Though it might seem the contrary with my companies creations…” he explains.

“There’s nothing natural about you leaving this world under 30!” she says spiritedly, and stands…

…when she does, she notices an open computer port with blue colored text across the screen… what one might call an old school way to process, or write.

Jack glances at it.

“I’m a Writer… I never told anyone that…” he explains.

She approaches the computer port, on the screen she sees writing about a fantasy barbarian character, called Khor’an.

“Khor’an,” she speaks.

Jack laughs a bit, then coughs, this time worse.

She rushes to him, and hands him a glass of clear water.

Exhausted, he finally stops coughing, takes the water, and takes a drink.

He sits it down, “Euphoria, tell me you’ll keep ‘Real Tech’ going…”

She stares at him, then nods in agreement.

He smiles, then picks up a small Identifier Tablet, signs it, then hands it to her…

…she looks at him, tears welling again, then signs.

“I better get some rest…” he speaks, smiles, then falls asleep…

Euphoria sits in the low lit room, rain starting to strike the outside window looking over the city…

…crying

DARK LIGHT

by Darkjade

Episode 1

EPISODE II – GOING PUBLIC

THE YEAR 2037 – NEW YORK CITY

APARTMENT BUILDING – WEALTHY DISTRICT

60TH FLOOR – JADEN DARIUS TUSK’S APARTMENT

Jaden lights a cigar, and flips on his computer screen.

“M6, Open client list…” he speaks.

“Client List, Open.

He stands, “Clients… This is the last time you will hear from me… I appreciate all of you contracts, and will attach referrals for future services.

Jaden Darius Tusk… Out”

“Our You Sure You Want To Do This Jaden…”

He turns of his computer screen, “It’s done.”

Jaden puts out the cigar, throws on a black coat, and heads out the door.

OUTSIDE JADEN’S APARTMENT

He summons his craft, then lifts into the sky.

In his craft he brings up the 7 Hybrids on his screen.

“M3, take me to NORTEN BRAYLECK’S home…” he speaks to his vehicle.

“Affirmative.”

His ship flies for a bit, then enters a non desirable district.

DISTRICT 6

He lands his craft across the street from a run down home with 6 carrier crafts parked in front of it.

“This Isn’t A Very Safe Area Jaden…”

“I know…” he replies.

Suddenly, 4 heavily armed street youth in their 20’s approach his vehicle.

His driver’s door opens.

They’re a bit surprised to a very fit silver haired Jaden step out.

“What’s up old timer…” speaks one of them, aiming his canon at him subtly.

Jaden disregards the youth, stepping by them, and towards the house.

A fifth youth steps out from behind one of the black carriers, gun lifted, Jaden disarms him, removes the ammo cartridge from the cannon, and drops it on the street.

The youth follows him into the house, amused by what they’re seeing.

Jaden enters, there are two girl Hackers, and one more young thug surrounding another dark haired youth on a computer.

“I said no interruptions!” speaks the black haired youth on the computer, without turning to face Jaden.

“Norten Braylecks?” speaks Jaden.

The black haired youth turns to face him, he is of Asian decent, his eyes are dark with hacker lights in his eyes, “Who’s asking?”

“Dark Light,” replies Jaden, who seems suddenly shocked by this.

“You’re… Dark Light?” Norten replies.

ROGUE

ROGUE

by DarkJade

EPISODE I – ACCEPTED

THE YEAR 2152 – EARTH

70 YEARS AFTER ‘DARK SKIES’

A MEDICAL EXCHANGE IN THE BLUE ZONE DISTRICT

“You really should see a Cyber Specialist Rogue…” speaks a dark haired, 40 something year old female, in a medical coat.

Sitting in a Cyber Adjustment chair is Detective CHESTER ROGUE, a black with silver tips haired, fairly rugged looking, yet somewhat handsome man in his early 50’s.

“Yeah… Well… If I do, they’ll just reignite the arms’ militant aspects… No thanks,” Rogue replies, as he looks down at his Cybernetic right arm, its’ electronics open.

She approaches the arm with an instrument, “Still…” she makes some adjustments, which cause his fingers to move.

She closes it up, “There yah go.”

He bends his arm, which appears to be functioning fine.

“Thanks Doc…”

OUTSIDE IN THE STREET, NEAR THE DOCTOR’S OFFICE

Rogue lights a cigarette, and clicks a switch on his key chain, causing the sleek black vehicle before him’s driver side door to open…

He gets in…

“Up…” the ship rises some 100 feet into the air, then propels forward, entering a metropolis sky full of other types of flying vehicles…

…From product, to people transport, to high end cruisers, to ships similar to his own in general design.

“I should go home… There’s no reason for me to be out here tonight…” he thinks to himself, as his ship swoops through the sky, avoiding all other craft.

It was a dark night…

Even for the Blue Zone District.

Lights in the city seamed as seldom stars…

As Rogue’s ship went low, the BOULEVARD was quiet.

…and it was late.

“Better than being home with my cat…”

Rogue’s eyes swept the streets, as if looking for something… Or… Someone.

“It’s better this way. We both need space. Autonomy.”

Suddenly three girls appear on the street, one looks dressed unbelievably, she has red brown hair to her shoulders, light makeup on her beautiful face… She looks to be like 26ish.

The other two are younger, but not nearly the scale of… Anything the first girl is.

The other two girls look scared, but trying to draw attention from drivers by.

” ROSE SCARLETT,” he says under his breath.

He knows her.

The girls see Rogues vehicle approach, and Rose waves the other two girls off, “I got this.”

Rogue pulls up along side the curve, and lowers his dark passenger window.

She leans over to peer in his dark cockpit, “Hi Rogue…”

He puts his cigarette out, raises the window, and drives away.

Maverick X

by DarkJade

YEAR 2120

A Black Aero One Man Fighter Ship enters the Y67 Space Station proximity, orbiting the blackened Earth.

“MAVERICK X, WAKE FROM YOUR SLUMBER… YOU’RE HOME” speaks the on board Computer, SHEILA.

A 50 something, silver haired Fighter Pilot awakens within the cockpit…

…out his front window, Y67.

Below, the uninhabited Earth.

“Yeah… I’m awake… Maverick X checking in.”

Maverick X clicks a few colored lit up switches and buttons, then attempts to contact the Space Station.

“Y67, this is Captain Maverick X, returning from Mission 8, do you copy…”

No reply.

“Sheila can you keep trying…”

“AFFIRMATIVE… Y67, THIS IS MAVERICK X’S AERO ONE, RETURNING FROM MISSION 8, DO YOU COPY.”

Meanwhile, Maverick X rises from his leaned back seat, stiff from the 2 year slumber, and turns on a faucet which blasts out cold simulated water.

“Ahh…” he sighs.

“THERE IS NO RESPONSE MAVERICK X… SHALL I TRY TO OPEN THE LANDING DOORS, AND LAND WITHIN.”

Maverick looks confused a bit, but rubs his face, “Yeah… Bring us in.”

Maverick’s Aero One Fighter Ship enters the doors Sheila opens, and the ship lands.

Inside, to his surprise, there’s no living beings within the Flight Docks.

“Sheila, turn on Security Canons… I’m going in, but I don’t want you to let anyone near the ship, copy.”

“COPY MAVERICK X.”

Maverick X grabs a D12 Laser Canon, opens the side door to the ship, and departs the craft.

“KKKKSSSHHHHHH” makes the sound of the doors decompressing.

He steps on the floor of the Flight Docks… They seem dusty, and cold.

He turns back towards his ship, “Take care of her Sheila,” then makes his way through the Flight Docks…

…no Human form to be seen.

Stranger Things – Season 3… In Review *Spoilers*

Posted in Fiction, Netflix, Science Fiction, Television Review with tags , , on July 21, 2019 by darkjade68

Image result for stranger things season 3 poster

So, ‘Stranger Things’ was a cool thing, and obviously a hit

But I was really curious what Season 3 would really be about

Some of the 8 Episode Season’s Episodes were good, some not so good

But I will say, the Actors/Cast were awesome, as usual

Though a couple of the Characters, kinda weren’t as good this time around

Actors/Characters;

Image result for stranger things season 3 dustin actor

Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven) was, once again, the strongest Actor on the show

And for me, there are Scenes (Especially her Final Scenes in Episode 8) which made the whole thing worth watching

Actually, the overall feeling and many of the Final Scenes of the Season (Post Battling, 3 Months Later), felt good

Image result for stranger things season 3 dustin actor

Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin) (Right) was also a huge stand out. Already liked him in Season 1 & 2, liked him even more in this Season & Joe Keery (Steve) (Left) was also just as hilarious as ever

Image result for stranger things season 3 billy

Dacre Montgomery (Billy) was also awesome in this Season, escalated to a main Villain

Image result for stranger things season 3 will noah schnapp

And Noah Schnapp (Will) who has absolutely transported me to my childhood in all 3 Seasons… I think this Actor has a real future.

80’s Theme/Setting;

Though I have thoroughly enjoyed the 80’s Theme/Setting, including Music and Movie references from the time…

Image result for john hughes movies

…I found that there were a few too many John Hughes-esq (Director of The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles Etc.) type ‘forced’ moments in this Season

I get that they’re all Teenagers, and its’ the 80’s

And I appreciate the homage

But, these Scenes are not only too frequent, many of them run way too long, making it feel like ‘filler’ between Monster Scenes Etc. (Not to mention, they lacked John Hughes Talent/Magic, which is fine a couple times, but it was too often in this Season)

Overall Review; 6.25 out of 10 – Overall, it was worth watching for me… Mainly because of several of the Actor’s Performances, the 80’s vibe, plus I like Teenager Adventure Type Movies…

I also love cool Monster Stuff, but the Monsters felt repetitive in this season.

Nuff Said
